10. Donor Messages

There are donor plaques alongside Kyobashi-gawa River so when our citizens and visitors to Hiroshima walk along the green banks, they can know who have donated dogwood trees to Hiroshima City.

At the end of every bridge we have installed plaques with the names of the dogwood tree donors whose trees have been placed between each bridge.

We put up display board listing each of the donors and placement of their dogwood trees at the western end of Tsurumi Bridge, where we held the dogwood planting ceremony in 2004.
